Dear Apple: If it will help you make a new Mac Pro, I'll happily send you a bag of screws. https://www.macrumors.com/2019/01/28/2013-mac-pro-postponed-us-screw-shortage/

    Not impossible, just not efficient. We don't have anything at the scale of Shenzhen's manufacturing.

    We don't *right now*. But neither did China before Apple started partnering with the manufacturers there to ramp up production scale.

    Notice that the US manufacturer was able to produce at scale before, they just reduced production, staff, and retooled because all USA manufacturers left for China. If they come back, why couldn't they do it again?

    It will take an investment, but not different than the original investment put into China.

    It's also worth remembering that in America, workers won't (generally) work themselves to death. In Shenzhen they don't get a choice.
